Advance Notice of Tree Works - Kerrs Wood

Friday 18th November 2022

Ards and North Down Borough Council uses a proactive approach in the management of its tree stock. We engage an expert consultant to periodically carry out full inspection surveys for each of our sites, to assess the risk of significant harm from a tree or branch fall.

The Council undertakes to replace trees in numbers in excess of those that need to be felled and has an annual tree-planting programme which sees many trees of both native and interesting unusual varieties planted over each Autumn/Winter season. For example our STAND4TREES initiative aims to plant a tree for every person in the Borough, that is approximately 160,000 trees.

We are planning to commence works in Kerrs Wood from Monday 21th November 2022. The works are for the purposes of good practice management, disease control and public safety. All trees are subject to an environmental assessment prior to being worked on which will prevent work happening that impacts local flora and fauna.
